The Russian State Ballet and Opera House will burst onto the stage again with a new and exciting performance of The Nutcracker, and will bring with them all the colour, enthusiasm and vibrancy that one would expect.
The Christmas story is based on "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" written by E.T.A. Hoffmann.
It tells the story of Marie, a rather sad little girl, whose godfather Drosselmeyer gives her a Nutcracker doll as a present on Christmas Eve which turns into a prince and the magic begins …
Featuring a timeless score from the incredible composer Pyotr. I. Tchaikovsky, The Nutcracker showcases all the best-loved elements that everyone listens to on radio or at home, such as The Spanish Dance, The Arabian Dance, The Russian Dance, The Chinese Dance, The Waltz of the Flowers and the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
This eternal seasonal favourite will be an unforgettable journey during the run-up to Christmas and an ideal introduction to people of any age to the magic that is classical ballet.
It is an opportunity for ballet lovers to see The Nutcracker as never before with an established and long standing Russian theatre that continues to grow on the international stage and win awards in the field of opera and ballet, and is an unmissable treat for the whole family.
